Tyler Perry Explains Why He’s Reviving Madea For Another Movie

It seemed like Tyler Perry’s time as Madea had ended after A Madea Family Funeral was released in 2019. Perry proved that by taking on varying roles while working on and pushing out an unlimited supply of television shows. But he reconsidered his stance after announcing a new film starring the foul-mouthed, gun-toting grandmother. After declaring he was over the adored character, what prompted him to bring her back? The Don’t Look Up star spoke on why he brought back the funny matriarch for another movie.

Around the time of the previous Madea film, the media impresario was ready to move on from the beloved character. He had grown beyond the gray hair and print dresses. But the outrageous matriarch was still living rent-free in Tyler Perry’s mind, so maybe her cinematic return wasn’t too surprising. But there was something that pushed Perry to bring her back. The multi-hyphenate spilled to Entertainment Weekly about why Madea was needed during these trying times.

I was looking at the state of the world and how polarized it is… nobody’s laughing. Nobody’s getting the chance to belly-laugh anymore. And I’m like, what tool do I have in my arsenal that can bring that kind of laughter?
